rachel maddow show" starts now. >> thank you for staying with us. take a look at this map. this is a time lapse map put together by "the new york times." it starts at 4:00 a.m. yesterday morning. it's more than half the entire east coast of the u.s. from virginia all the way up to maine. the yellow dots represent people without power. you see a little yellow dot here and there. this is at 4:00 a.m. yesterday morning. this is what happened next. over the course of 24 hours, look at that. as sandy battered the eastern sea board 6 million customers were left in pitch black. the swath of the eastern united states totally blacked out over the course of one day. and at this hour, more than 6 million electricity customers remain without power in the east. when they say this is the largest storm to have ever hit the east coast of the united states, the word largest in that phrase actually just means the physical area that is covered by this storm, which you can see in the fact we had outages from virginia to maine. but in terms of the direct hit of this storm, part of what makes this a storm of n

all right. i want to thank you for staying with us this hour. happy friday. when republican presidential nominee mitt romney at last night's al smith dinner made one of his jokes about president obama, that was also sort of an implicitly a shot at the first lady. one of the interesting things is the first lady, herself, was not in the room. mr. romney was there with his wife, ann romney, but the president was there without the first lady. michelle obama was not in the room. i think that is what made mr. romney's joke more awkward than it otherwise might have been. >> campaigns can be grueling, exhausting. president obama and i each very lucky to have one person who's always in our corner, someone who we can lean on and someone who's a comforting presence without whom we wouldn't be able to go another day. i have my beautiful wife, ann, he has bill clinton. >> which is a funny joke, but he's also a little bit mean to the first lady, right? mr. romney did go on at the end of his remarks to say very nice things, very nice and serious things about the whole obama family. that so
's the beef or whatever for years now. i think this is the first time we have ever had somebody use this technology in a political mailer. >> if it's a legitimate rape -- >> it does go on and on and on. it's not just the quote. it goes on and is essentially a full audio ad against todd akin. unlike the paladino stink mailer, at least this one when you close it, it stops. right? this one, the stink goes on. this talking mailer is being sent out against todd akin, the republican senate candidate from missouri this year. this was not sent out by his opponent's campaign by the claire mccaskill campaign. it was sent out by a democratically leaning super pac. but this is obviously clearly designed to benefit her in the election. claire mccaskill is a very good campaigner. some of her ads in this election i should say, other than the talking mailer are among the best ads i've seen a democrat run anywhere. whatever you think about her politics, she's a very good campaigner. even as a very, very good campaigner it was almost impossible to imagine senator claire mccaskill being able to hold o
. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. only eight days from now, a week from tomorrow, vote iing will bn nationwide in the presidential election. and on a normal night, the story of that election being this close to upon us, that would drive our coverage and dominate this news hour. but tonight is not a normal night. right outside this building in the biggest city in the country, there's a massive storm that's just made landfall and all day long has been imposing its will on the atlantic coast from the carolinas all the way up to new england. it has toppled cranes on skyscrapers. this is that crane falling today. yeah, it has toppled cranes on skyscrapers, it has flooded the eastern sea board. it has messed up the presidential election. but this giant storm called sandy is not over yet. the storm making landfall just outside atlantic city, new jersey, at 8:00 p.m. eastern time tonight. forecasters calling sandy a post pos post-tropical cyclone which might sound better, but it isn't better. all it means is the storm has lost the characteristics of a tropical cyclone but still has
is the heart of it all. >> all right. ohio state senator nina turner, great to have you with us again tonight. thanks so much. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. i'm a believer. our locker room's okay. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. > good evening, ed. great show tonight. it was epic. thanks for staying with us the next hour. televised debates have existed in this country since 196 o. that was the really, really famous one. it was sweaty, dick nixon sick with a fever against polished john f. kennedy. legend has it that richard nixon heard that jfk was not going to get makeup from cbs for that debate, and so nixon said, well, i won't have any makeup either, then. even though he was running a 102 degree fever and not only was nixon ill that day, it turned out that when jfk turned down the cbs makeup offer, it was because he apparently had his own makeup arrangements already made. and so we got jfk with makeup and no fever, we got richard nixon with no makeup and a fever. what we got on tv in the first televised presidential debate in our nation's history was
powell, thank you for joining us. that's "the ed show." the "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> good evening, ed. thank you for saying with us this hour. we have barney frank later on this hour responding to the elizabeth warren/scot brown debate that happened in boston. that was a barn burner. but before that, i have to tell you we had a remarkable late in the game development in the presidential race today. it is october 1st. but what happened today is roughly the opposite of an october surprise, i guess? today the republican party announced that in five of the nine or so swing states in the presidential race this year, in the five states that you see marked with an x on this map, the republican party is stopping its voter registration efforts. the republican party has suddenly and totally as of october 1st given up on trying to register new voters in nevada, colorado, virginia, north carolina, and florida. each of those states is very much in play this year. and the republican party has announced that in these five key swing states, they are going to stop registering new
but we need turnout in california and we need them. >> bradley whitford, great to have you with us. that's "the ed show." i'm ed shultz. now to the quarterback of last night's coverage, rachel maddow. her show starting right now. >> the patriots are not having the best quarterback year, so i'm taking that -- >> you were okay on sunday from what i saw. >> we took it into extra time to give everybody extra time with their ulcer doctors, but the quarterback is a little unnerving. >> last night was fun. thank you for staying with us for the next hour. i do have something to say about last night's debate and i hope you'll indulge me for a moment. last night was the last moment where the whole country will be watching the exact same thing for the exact same amount of time before we get down to election day. last night was our last collective moment as a nation, watching the same candidates at the same time in a way that was unmediated that brings us together as a country. this past july, mitt romney made the first visit of any candidate to the great totally nonswing state of montana. mon
. karen finney, great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. and i want to say that i had no problems sleeping last night. how about you? >> i slept very soundly last night. in part because i was so wrung out. it was fun to watch, wasn't it? as a debate? >> it was fun to watch. you know, the look of the president last night was so totally different. the look in his eye, his demeanor, his intensity, very impressive in his game, no doubt. >> your intensity today, when you sung out the word "fumble" in your eblock tonight, i was like, oh, yeah, ed's still feeling it. thanks, ed. >> and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. >>> you know, winning a debate is not the same as winning an election. and common wisdom holds that winning even all the debates doesn't necessarily guarantee that you will win the elections. it may not even help you very much at all. but after the big bump in the polls that mitt romney got after his dominate performance in the first presidential debate this year, all eyes ri
at home for joining us. we are broadcasting not from new york, but from california. i did a book event in santa barbara yesterday for my book "drift." i spoke to a room of about 2,000 people, which is unnerving if. you're not used to doing that sort of thing. and i talked about my book. i got asked a question at this event about the political impact of the first presidential debate. and the way it went seems to be important in understanding the temperature of the country on the presidential race right now. most everybody agrees that the first debate was won quite handedly by the republican challenger mitt romney and lost very much by president obama. but yesterday in santa barbara, i told this giant room full of people in this theater when asked about this subject that as clearly and as cleanly as mr. romney won the the debate, it still seems politically important that mr. romney did not win the debate in a way that produced a single sound bite. i mean, yeah, 60 million people watched romney win the debate overall, but for the 240 or so million american who is did not watch the debate
/ryan campaign before today has been able to use one particular technique to escape the consequences of having unpopular policy ideas or policy ideas they don't particularly want to defend. they do this same thing over and over again, and usually, it works for them. here's the pattern. here's the pattern they have established. here's mitt romney back in august telling scott pelly of "06 minutes" that he believes abortion should be allowed to protect a woman's health. seriously? mitt romney thinks abortion is okay if a woman's health is in danger? no, not really. his campaign later said, no, never mind what mitt romney just said. he does not believe abortion should be allowed to protect a woman's health. okay. then in september, here was mitt romney telling david gregory on "meet the press" that he's not going to repeal all of obama care. he says he will keep part of obama care. but the part that requires coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. seriously? mitt romney is going to keep part of obama care? no, no, not really. his campaign later said, no, never mind what mitt romney just
good pointed question at last night's debate. >> i want to move us along to susan katz, who has a question, and governor, it's for you. >> governor romney, i am an undecided voter because i'm disappointed with the lack of progress i've seen in the last four years. however, i do attribute much of america's economic and international problems to the failings and missteps of the bush administration. since both you and president bush are republicans, i fear a return to the policies of those years, should you win this election. what is the biggest difference between you and george w. bush and how do you differentiate yourself from george w. bush? >> yes. great question. a question that nobody had any idea how romney was going to answer it. this is why town hall is such a great format. you get real people asking direct questions, that the campaigns do not want to talk about, and that the beltway press maybe hasn't been focused on, but they are questions that are really on regular people's minds. and to mr. romney's credit, he did not try to evade that question. he did try to answer th
of administrators. romney will deregulate water, air, the workplace, food, oil, banks, wall street, he told us that he wants to get rid of teachers, cops, firefighters or what he calls government workers. that's mitt romney's america. george w. bush's policies on steroids. now ask yourself the question, americans. can you get fooled again? we're a month away. think about it. that's "the ed show." i'm ed shultz. >>> "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening my friend. thank you for staying with us this hour. there was this moment in 2008 on election night that year. i know you were watching our coverage here on msnbc, but on election night in 2008 over on the fox news channel, carl rove in the middle of fox's election night coverage was on tv gaming out john mccain's chances of pulling out a win that night. he said during their election coverage, quote, if senator mccain loses ohio he goes from 286 electoral votes, which the republicans carried in '04, down to 266 and that puts him below the 270 needed to win the white house. so he would not only need to s
. >> mr. gerard, united steelworkers international president, good to have you with us tonight on this story. thanks so much. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening and thank you very much. thanks for staying with us for this hour. >>> last night on this show, i was talking about the state of ohio during a segment in which i was also talking about the state of iowa and my brain somehow combined them and i ended up christening a new place in america called ohioa. and all day long, i have been doing that now. and i'm worried i may have accidentally rewired my brain, so that ohioa is the only thing i can say whenever i try to say either ohio or iowa. i now have a whole set of new words i have to say very slowly. in this case, to avoid saying, accidentally, ohioa. vice president joe biden has the same kind of problem today on the campaign trail. >> ladies and gentlemen, this is a guy who's running all the ads here in iowa, saying that he's going to get tough on china. >> yes, except joe biden was not "h
'll see you tomorrow. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. there's breaking political news this hour. as previously uncirculated or not widely circulated tape of president obama on the one side and vice presidential nominee paul ryan on the other side have both been posted online tonight in typical, late in the campaign, october surprise, boy do we have a bomb shell fashion. first on the right at the tucker carlson website, the right wing sirens blaring excitement tonight is for the same kind of tape they have tried to make bomb shells out of the last three times we have gone through this in the election cycle. over and over and over again, the right has tried to make huge news not out of something president obama has done as president but out after a big unveiling, a big, giant, coordinated round of attention for something from president obama's supposedly secret past. this spring it was the glen beck website dousing themselves in gasoline and pulling the fire alarm over video of president obama speaking as a law student at harvard. video at a press conferen
, ed. amazing show tonight. amazing. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. in the last presidential campaign in 2008 when colin powell stopped holding his cards close to his vest, and decided to make his endorsement in the presidential race between barack obama and john mccain that year, colin powell choosing obama for his endorsement was pretty much the last thing in the world the mccain campaign needed to hear. at that point, they were already becoming a really evident long shot. the race was starting to increasingly look like it wasn't even going to be close. and the colin powell endorsement just took the wind out of the mccain campaign's sails. john mccain responded to the endorsement that same day by going on fox news and sighing that, well, it wasn't all that much of a surprise. he at least, though, was able to say even if he did not have colin powell's endorsement, he did have endorsements from some other former republican secretaries of state. so at least he had those names to offer for counterbalance. the romney campaign's counterbalance tonight to
of the latest. let's go back to nbc news meteorologist bill karins. bill, what have you got for us? >> these things are going to continue to develop through the night but all the big issues that were caused in the new york city area was because of the high tide, the historic, epic if you want to call it that high tide. the only reason they use epic is that's never happened before. we shattered the previous record high tide we had in 1960 with donna. that's why new yorksy we're talking so much about it, not because we're here. if it was any other city in the country this would have been a huge, big deal with this much of a storm surge. the same as it was for atlantic city, new jersey. might as well just draw the line on the map from atlantic city up to new york because all of those coastal communities in new jersey were hit extremely hard by this storm surge. what are we left with right now at this hour? take a look at the size of this storm. we still have clouds from the storm all the way down in atlanta, georgia, all the way up well up into canada, and now the clouds, as the storm
